Beach Day!

Did I mention to you that on one of those lovely, sunny warm days at the beach I managed to get stung by a stingray? YOUCH! I touch my foot down to a gravely part of the ocean and the next second there was a pinch in my foot. A few seconds later there was searing pain up my leg and the whole foot was turning red.

We headed to the Mexican ER (which I neglected to take any pictures of!) and had it checked out. Everything looked fine and they gave me antibiotics.

I took one course of antibiotics for it and it held whatever it was at bay but 24 hours after I finished the course my foot started heating up, turning red, and swelling. I went to the doctor today and I'm now on my second course of antibiotics. Hopefully that does the trick!

Never say beach vacations are not adventures!

  1. Lovely pictures! How I wish I could be there right now, so relaxing and warm.

    That sucks about the stingray sting, it's an annoying thing to deal with :( Hope you're feeling better! My coworker's daughter had the same thing happen to her while she was in Mexico - unfortunately the hotel staff told her it was fine so she didn't go to ER - when she came back home, she discovered the barb was still in her foot!
